From Colin Farrell to Seán Óg Ó hAilpín, the grooms on this series of 'Don't Tell the Bride' are relying on heartthrobs to get their brides on side.

That's no easy feat on tonight's show as Tipperary bride Niamh Whyte (24) is, like most brides who feature on the show, hoping for a fairytale castle kind of bash.

Her betrothed, Mickey O'Sullivan (27) from Cork, however, has other ideas.

The couple met after a hurling clash between their native counties and things moved fast.  They ditched plans to emigrate to Australia, have had two babies, and got engaged at Christmas 2014.

Given their GAA 'meet cute', Mickey is planning a GAA themed wedding with the ceremony taking place on a GAA pitch, complete with farm animals including pigs, for no apparent reason.

He also sends her off on a hen which revolves around her fear of heights.

Mickey ropes in Cork hurler Seán Óg Ó hAilpín to deliver Niamh's wedding invitation at Semple Stadium to sweeten the deal.

It may not quite work out, however... 

"I have no faith in him whatsoever," says Niamh.
